Description Rahul Chincholkar 2019-03-01 12:56:42 UTC
Description of problem:

* Background of the issue -

We need to use perl script provided by AWS, Documented in KCS article [1] to get memory usage metrics of AWS instances, it is only supported on Linux Instances.

From the bugzilla ( we know that the VMDB collects mem_usage_absolute_average from AWS CloudWatch which then used to show memory graph in C&U data.

Memory graph is missing in C&U UI for AWS instances, Engineering is working on bugzilla ( to make it available.

* The issue -

There is a new CloudWatch Agent [2] introduced and recommended by AWS which supports metrics collection for Linux and Windows instances.

Memory Metric are captured with this new CloudWatch agent shows different name (mem_used_percent) and stored under "CWAgent". CFME does not capture this metric in VMDB.
Looks like the code is missing for this metric, here is the list [3] of metrics collected by new CloudWatch agent
